It's amazing really; a transition between actually driving and autonomous cars. Don't have to know how to parallel park, turn around to see where you are going when you back up, no need to shoulder check for lane changes, or remember to turn on your headlights. Won't be long before it's "Alexa, drive me to IKEA." And we will be poorer for the experience.
Ain't that that truth buddy!

"Lane Sharing" is the umbrella over lane splitting (up to highway speeds) and lane filtering (traffic stopped or very slow). This is the best way to describe it IMO.

There are those that think using this term creates a better image. I am not one of those myself as I think it causes confusion and makes it look like we are running away from our own terminology. That and the fact that people in realty don't like to "share". But hey that's just me.

I didn't go but I heard it was really informative for those that were not up to speed on this. Also - it's on us to make drivers aware that lane sharing is 1) safer for us 2) eases congestion. Those are the only two arguments that are useful and might be heard, the rest falls on deaf ears. So if we want this to happen, it will take some talking, convincing and time and maybe some day we will arrive there. Fingers crossed.
